Dr. Pazo has more than 12 publications and is a current and past investigator in multiple clinical trials, looking at new and innovative treatments in multifocal IOLs, phacoemulsification techniques, IOL centration, impact of pupil size, shift and eccentricity, LASIK, SMILE, keratoconus, corneal crosslinking, computational modeling of keratoconus progression (biomechanics), trans-ptk, intacs, dry eye, psychometric questionnaires for quality of vision & quality of life and other ocular surface disorders. He works as a clinical research executve at He Eye Hospital at Shenyang, China and and lectures at He University.
During his MSc his research involved in the cardio-pulmonary laboratory of Health and biological science under the supervision of Dr. Shakeeb Moosavi, the Neurophysiological mechanisms of dyspnoea: Experimentally-induced dyspnoea in healthy subjects to study and investigate the neural afferent sources of different qualities of dyspnoea. Aggregated skills in respiratory-psychophysics, worked with a partial rebreathe circuit for use in studies of the ventilatory and perceptual response to hypercapnia and hypoxia. He also researched molecular neuroscience research group in the Department of Biological and Medical Sciences working on the structural and functional relationships of ligand-gated ion channels, with particular emphasis on nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChR) under the supervision of Professor Isabel Bermudez-Diaz.
